Didn't read the whole thread, but if you are considering the PNY 780, why not a gigabyte 780 with 3 year warranty?

gigabyte 780 (newegg)

don't get the 7990.
Either 780 classy or a 290 with waterblock imo. biggrin.gif

Either way what u choose is gonna be awesome.

If you go for a 780 try to hit 1300 clock. If you get a 290 1200 core is a nice clock most likely 1150 should be doable.

you are the second person that said that. I'm curious why does the box say life time warranty?

Google "PNY lifetime warranty" and you'll see what it means.

pny is trying to turn the other way around, they're old policy of lifetime was that its covered so long as the specific model is still in production, that pissed off alot of ppl cause your average card production span is probably 1-2 years. so alot of people weren't able to rma cause their cards are no longer in production,

but because of alot of complaints, and i think 1 or 2 possible law suits. pny updated their policy, so now if they dont have in stock of ur model when u rma, they will give you a newer model with equivalent or better performance.

now pny is one of my preferred choice because their policy now is very similar to what evga was before.

and its lifetime warranty if you register within 30 days, otherwise you'll get a limited 1 year warranty. its that simply

At 1200mhz core with both cards+no throttle my 780 is the faster of the two in every single game that I own and this is comparing to a 290X much less a regular 290.

Having owned a few gpu's: 780, 2 x 780 ti, 280x, 290 and also an avid overclocker...I can honestly say that you are pushing your card too hard. No air cooled including after market air cooler should ever go pass 1.21v, period. Only on water and with the EK water block (best vrm cooler) should you push your card that hard. Although GPU temp are low, vrm temp is skyrocketing and you risk a dead gpu sooner or later. 780's does not have vrm temp sensor.

Heck my GTX 780 with the Arctic accelero 4 cooler paired with additional mem and vrm sinks is hitting 1326mhz on the core with 1.244vc rock solid with a modded bios "no throttle at all" and only loads max temps of 50c after hours of strenuous gaming. Im betting with 1.3 to 1.325vc I would have a 1400mhz 780 on my hands.

With 1.3 to 1.325v on that accelero 4, you're going to get a dead card with burnt vrm. Even 1.244v, you are risking it as the Accelero vrm sinks are terrible.

Generally, when both the 290x and 780 are overclocked, they tend to perform roughly the same as a few fps wont be noticeable. However, what is noticeable is the terrible 290 reference cooler...loud and inefficient.
